Description

Five pitches of adventurous climbing. Wide is the name of the game, but edges and ways to cheat around the offwidth abound. 2nd pitch roof is stellar. Make sure to traverse right above offwidth after roof of second pitch. All pitches are memorable. I would recommend this route.

Location

Left side of Elderberry Buttress. 2 double rope raps down joint effort. Climb right from top of route to find rappel.

Singles to 6" was perfect, with a couple med-large stoppers. Classic old-school route to a great Pine Creek summit. #5&6 are only needed on P4, and can be walked almost the entire length of the pitch. I think it is entirely possible to rap the wall with a single 70M based on the middle-mark on my 60M rope, though I did not try.. proceed with caution Aug 28, 2017

An adventure in wide. Not too bad if you've got some style. In wide, 1 of 4, 5, 6 was plenty. Just use them where you really need them and you'll be fine.
